Kool! keep us updated. I learned all about the Kern while I was down there last month. All the guides hung out in the bar kitty corner to the Mcdonalds in Isabella. They got me all excited to bring a boat with me next time. Going to practice up on my rolls and boat when the winds aren't blowing. Drove to bakersfield in the dark so couldn't see much of the canyon but that crazy road lets you know there is some knarly river below.
Not sure where you are staying but there is only one hotel with proper Air Conditioning. It was inbetween weldon and Isabella. The rest of them have either Evaporative coolers or nothing at all.
Goodluck and Have fun!
